Legends of Tomorrow Moments Even Weirder Than Gorilla Grodd Trying to Kill Obama

5. Damien Darhk's "Return of the Mack"

Damien Darhk was resurrected by his daughter Nora, who is under the thrall of the demon Mallus, the Big Bad of Season 3. Damien's resurrection, however, was as bizarre as they come. It began with the Legends chasing a vampire in Victorian England and discovering the corpse drained of blood wore a PalmerTech watch. What's more, the watch had a musical ringtone - Mark Morrison's "Return of the Mack." This became the soundtrack to Damien Darhk's return to corporeal form, as the magical villain and his witch daughter massacred the Time Bureau's agents - while they could apparently hear the song playing  - in arguably Legends' most memorable fight scene.

4. J.R.R. Tolkien Helps The Legends Find Christ's Blood

Legends of Tomorrow Fellowship of the Spear Review

As the Legends and the Legion of Doom raced to find the Spear of Destiny in Season 2, the heroes needed the help of J.R.R. Tolkien to find the body of Sir Gawain, who was buried with a vial of Jesus Christ's blood. The blood of Christ being the only substance that can activate the reality-altering power of the Spear, of course. With Tolkien as their burglar, the Legends formed the Fellowship of the Spear, found Gawain's remains and the vial of Christ's blood in a French church, and ultimately stopped the Legion for good during World War I.

3. Damien Darhk Seeks Fatherly Advice From A Corpse

Damien Darhk is an evil, sadistic murderer, but he is, surprisingly, also a loving father who feels guilty about being absent from his daughter Nora's life and fears losing her to the demon Mallus. When he sent Nora and the kidnapped Ray Palmer to 1960s East Germany to retrieve the secret to Cold Fusion from a German scientist, Darhk also sent them against a younger version of himself, who was the world's greatest assassin. Meanwhile, Darhk fretted about being a bad father to Alan, an exec from the dating app Upswipz whom Darhk had just murdered. Darhk pouring his heart to Alan's bloody corpse was definitely one of Legends' most macabre scenes.

2. Sara Lance Gets Advice From Obama

Sara Lance also seeks advice from unusual sources. When Damien Darhk appeared on the Waverider asking for the Legends' help to save Nora from Mallus, Sara naturally couldn't bring herself to trust the man who murdered his sister Laurel and tormented all of time and reality. So Sara looked to her new friend Barry Obama for counsel, not just about Darhk but about her relationship with Ava. Obama gave sound advice, and a grateful Sara echoed many people's sentiments by telling the future President "I really miss you!' before wiping his memory and returning to the Waverider.

1. Beebo The God of War

Beebo was a talking stuffed animal who became trapped in 1000 A.D. New Valhalla along with a young Martin Stein from 1992. When the Legends arrived to save their friend's younger self, they discovered the Vikings led by Leif Eriksson and his sister Freydis Eriksdottir had eschewed the Norse pantheon. Because the talking toy could say "commands" like "Beebo loves you", the Vikings now worshipped Beebo as the God of War, which spurred them onto greater conquests. This elevated into a level 12 time anachronism that altered the future so that Christmas Day was replaced with Beebo Day. Damien and Nora Darhk's arrival only worsened matters, but in the end, the Legends were able to right the timeline, exposing Beebo as a "false god." Still, Beebo remains a part of the Arrowverse and the one-time God of War occasionally appears on The Flash. After all, "he lived for battle!"
